Advanced Off-Road Research makes long travel rear shock hoops. Basically this gets you full travel (don't get with short shocks) and full damping (don't get with shocks tilted in). The downside is that you loose bed space and this will only buy you more travel if the shocks are the limiting factor in your rear suspension.

You haven’t even done the SAS yet <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0"> ! J/K, remember droop will be great with longer shocks, but compression will be limited i.e.( wheel-well, bump-stops) unless of course you CUT. Also consider the d-shaft in the rear, too much droop may require a long spline shaft (extra$$). Are you thinking of keeping just leafs? Or maybe running coil-overs? What are you thinking? Is this a trail only rig? Are you thinking Baja type suspension?
